Title: mite powder vs louse powder
Post by: neil9797 on March 26, 2010, 15:02
Are they really one and the same? In adverts they both stress 'natural' etc so I wonder if they are both, in fact, just diatom-based products? I use Hemexsan to dust the coop so do I need a different product for lice?

Thanks, N

Please don't bump posts - somebody will answer when they have an answer for you.
I use diatom in my coups to protect against mites and lice and spray with poultry shield to help prevent red mite.
